Attack On DC

Over 200 years ago there was another attack on our nation’s Capitol….the War of 1812 DC was burned by the British soldiers…..and then came 06 January 2021…..

Since the Capitol was burned you would think that it would be known as the worse attack on our Capitol…..you would be mistaken…..

Former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley calls himself a history “aficionado,” and we’ve had several conversations about the relationship between history and current events. Recently we found ourselves discussing the War of 1812 because of a major similarity with the coup attempt of Jan. 6, 2021 — namely, a direct attack on the U.S. Capitol.

As O’Malley reflected on the events of Jan. 6, he became emotional. He was thinking about his mother, who worked for former Sen. Barbara Mikulski, a Maryland Democrat who was the longest-serving woman in congressional history, and knew, he said, “every nook and cranny” of the Capitol. She had instilled in her son a deep love of American history and America’s democratic institutions.

“As I was hearing reports about members of Congress barricading doors, huddling under desks and trying to be quiet — so the people outside in the mob wouldn’t know they were there and attack them or take their lives — I was reminded of the story of the Virginia militia who found themselves inside the Capitol building in 1814,” O’Malley said.

I agree….the events of 06 January was an attack but rabid Americans trying to undermine the government of the United States.

06 January will go down in history as the worse attack on American soil…..that is unless the Red States get their way and revision history in their favor.

Insurrection Update #9

My continuing series looking at the day of infamy, 06 January, and the events swirling around that could assist in yet another attempt to take over the government.

All the whining and bluster can be summed up by one Capitol rioter…..

“We weren’t there to steal things,” Kiczenski, who entered the Capitol on January 6, said, according to the book excerpt. “We weren’t there to do damage. We were just there to overthrow the government.”

That one statement alone should tell you everything you need to know about the day and the riot.

This is what wild conspiratorial BS wrought…..

Jarrod Copeland and Ian Rogers, who are part of a militia group linked to the Three Percenter network, are facing federal and state charges for their “specific, detailed, and serious” plot to attack a government building, destroying evidence, assembling bombs, and owning illegal machine guns. 

Prosecutors say the two men started hatching their plot on November 25, a few weeks after Joe Biden was declared the winner of the presidential election. 

“It will send a fucking message, man… Scare the whole country,” Rogers told Copeland in text messages recovered by the government.  

They initially talked about attacking the governor’s mansion but then shifted focus to the Democratic headquarters in Sacramento. According to prosecutors, they spent nearly two months planning their attack: they reviewed maps of the building’s layout, and discussed weaponry in-depth. They weighed various options; riddling it with gunfire, setting pipe bombs, or fire-bombing it.

Then there is the idiot that decided to defend herself….and uses stupidity as a defense….

A court hearing for MAGA rioter Pauline Bauer went off the rails on Monday after she began yelling at the judge while declaring herself a “sovereign citizen.”

NBC 4 Washington’s Scott MacFarlane reports that Bauer, who infamously called for the hanging of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) during the Capitol riots, immediately went off the deep end by telling the judge that she is not subject to American laws.

According to MacFarlane, Bauer during her court hearing repeatedly interrupted the judge while also demanding that the court recognize her own personal judicial authority.

“Every man is independent of all laws, except those of nature,” declared Bauer, who decided to represent herself in court.

https://www.rawstory.com/sovereign-citizen-in-court/

I have garden slugs that have more brains than this twat…..Burn Her Ass!

Now on to the actual Capitol rioters…..

A Florida man who breached the Senate chamber carrying a Trump campaign flag was sentenced Monday to eight months behind bars, the first resolution for a felony case in the Capitol insurrection, per the AP. Paul Allard Hodgkins apologized and said he was ashamed of his actions on Jan 6. Speaking calmly from a prepared text, he described being caught up in the euphoria as he walked down Washington’s most famous avenue, then followed a crowd of hundreds up Capitol Hill and into the Capitol building. “If I had any idea that the protest … would escalate (the way) it did … I would never have ventured farther than the sidewalk of Pennsylvania Avenue,” Hodgkins told the judge. He added: “This was a foolish decision on my part.”

Prosecutors had asked for Hodgkins to serve 18 months behind bars, saying in a recent filing that he, “like each rioter, contributed to the collective threat to democracy” by forcing lawmakers to temporarily abandon their certification of Joe Biden’s 2020 election victory over President Trump and to scramble for shelter from incoming mobs. His sentencing could set the bar for punishments of hundreds of other defendants as they decide whether to accept plea deals or go to trial. He and others are accused of serious crimes but were not indicted, as some others were, for roles in larger conspiracies. Hodgkins pleaded guilty last month to one count of obstructing an official proceeding, which carries a maximum 20-year prison sentence. In exchange, prosecutors agreed to drop lesser charges, including entering a restricted building and disorderly conduct.

BS!  This tool should have served the full sentence…..I do not care if he apologized….there has got to be a lesson for stupidity.

8 months?  Tommy Chong of Cheech and Chong fame, was given 9 months for selling a bong…..and his ‘crime’ did not involve violence or destruction…..

And then there are the idiots that boast about their violence on social media…..and they get busted.

Andrew Quentin Taake was arrested Friday by the FBI, which has accused him of pepper-spraying officers and striking them with a metal “whip-like device” at the January 6 Capitol riot.

And apparently it was Taake’s online dating foray that helped get him in trouble.

Taake, 32, of Houston, was tipped off to the FBI by someone who said they hadn’t met him — but was texting with him about the riot — on Bumble.

“Witness 1 messaged Taake on a dating app, Bumble, while he was in Washington, D.C.,” prosecutors allege. “Although Taake and Witness 1 never met in person, Taake discussed his participation in the riot with Witness 1 and sent Witness 1 several pictures of himself, including a picture of himself taken on January 6, 2021, after he was allegedly pepper sprayed by law enforcement officers. Witness 1 said Taake admitted to being inside the U.S. Capitol for approximately 30 minutes.”

https://www.rawstory.com/capitol-riot-arrests-2653919075/

This goes to show just how mentally challenged these in-bred slugs truly are.

These idiots are turning on each other trying to get a better deal from the government….

Authorities in Ohio have arrested a suspect in the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection, after a fellow rioter allegedly identified him and provided investigators with his phone number.

Erik Rau was arrested Thursday after being identified by fellow Central Ohioan Derek Jancart, Columbus’ ABC affilate reports.

“Court documents say Jancart admitted to entering the building with Rau and provided investigators with Rau’s phone number,” the station reported. “After a search warrant was filed, phone records show Rau was at the Capitol during the insurrection.”

Jancart was arrested in February after being identified by a former co-worker in a photo he posted on Facebook showing him inside the Capitol, the Columbus Dispatch reported. “We’re in,” Jancart wrote in the caption.

Closing Thought–26Jul21

Let me see….a 30 something that lives with his Mama….has to have a special diet….dresses in shaman’s headdress…paints his bod…..howls…..and thinks he is related to Jesus…..would you think this dude is mentally ill?

The lawyer for the QAnon Shaman has confirmed that his client is off his nutter…..

One of the most recognizable members of the mob that stormed the Capitol has been diagnosed with multiple mental illnesses that include transient schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, his lawyer tells Reuters. Psychologists with the Federal Bureau of Prisons made the findings after testing Jacob Chansley, aka the QAnon Shaman, says attorney Albert Watkins. A shirtless Chansley was widely photographed in the Capitol building wearing a headdress with fur and horns. He faces six charges stemming from the riot, per Insider, but Watkins is now working on a plea deal in the wake of the mental health diagnoses. The test results mesh with what the US Navy found in regard to Chansley back when he served in 2006, Watkins adds.

“What we’ve done is we’ve taken a guy who is unarmed, harmless, peaceful … with a pre-existing mental vulnerability of significance, and we’ve rendered him a chocolate soup mess,” says Watkins. He says his client’s problems have been made worse because of solitary confinement. Prosecutors have generally pushed back against the notion that Chansley is harmless. They say video evidence shows Chansley inside the Senate chamber, where he called then VP Mike Pence a “f—ing traitor” and left behind a threatening note. Watkins, though, says his client is delusional and has expressed the belief that he is directly related to Jesus and Buddha.

Good!

Now put this d/bag in a rubber room for 20 years…..he deserves nothing for his part in the insurrection…..

Period!

Clown Show Cancelled

The House Select Committee on the events in and around 06 January will proceed without GOP participation. The Speaker refused to emit two members that were instrumental in the attempt to deny Biden the count and Minority leader McCarthy saw the jig was up and pulled all names for the Committee….

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy submitted his picks for the committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol attack Tuesday. But the Republican included two congressmen, Reps. Jim Banks of Indiana and Jim Jordan of Ohio, who vocally supported objections to finishing the electoral vote count and formalizing President Biden’s election. After House Speaker Nancy Pelosi objected, McCarthy said he would pull the rest of his picks, too, NBC News reports. Pelosi was set to approve the other picks, including Texas’ Troy Nehls, who also supported objections on Jan. 6.

“How people voted on the president—affirming the election of Joe Biden—is not a criterion for service,” Pelosi said Tuesday, per the Hill. Pelosi’s picks for the committee include Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, who was one of the few GOP House members who voted to impeach Donald Trump. Pelosi can veto any of McCarthy’s picks she doesn’t like. She said the selection of Jordan and Banks would damage the “integrity of the investigation.” The committee is scheduled to meet July 27. McCarthy said that unless Pelosi seats all five of his nominees, ” Republicans will not be party to their sham process and will instead pursue our own investigation of the facts,” McCarthy said, per the AP.

Not to worry these GOP sycophants may not be featured in the Center Ring they will have ample time and opportunity to spew their hatred and chaos from the side rings.

The Hearing will not be as amusing without the mental midgets in the GOP…..but they are not going away.

The GOP theater of the absurd is alive and well….and should provide the media with endless reports on the antics of the sidelined clowns.

Insurrection Clown Show

Since there will be no commission similar to the 9/11 commission around the insurrection of 06 January…Pelosi has decided to have a House Select Committee….and McCarthy has named the GOP Reps that will be on this commission……

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has made his selections for the five lawmakers he will appoint to the select committee probing the January 6 attack on the US Capitol. Jim Banks of Indiana, chair of the Republican Study Committee, will lead the group, whose other members will be Rodney Davis of Illinois (top Republican on the House Administration Committee), Jim Jordan of Ohio (top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee), Kelly Armstrong of North Dakota (a lawyer who was on the House Judiciary Committee when then-President Trump was first impeached), and Troy Nehls of Texas (a former sheriff who helped Capitol Police get rioters away from the House floor).

They won’t be the only Republicans on the committee; Liz Cheney was among the eight members named by Democrats. Politico notes McCarthy has chosen experienced lawmakers who will likely have no trouble countering Democrats on the committee. All five voted against impeaching Trump after the Capitol riot, and three voted to overturn the 2020 presidential election results. They’ll need to be approved by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the Washington Post reports. The first hearing will be held July 27. In a statement Monday night cited by the AP, Banks said, “Make no mistake, Nancy Pelosi created this committee solely to malign conservatives and to justify the Left’s authoritarian agenda.”

3 of the GOP basically refuse to say that Biden won the election…..these slugs should add to the absurdity to the proceedings.

Now do you see why I say it will be a clown show…..with the GOP providing the clowns.

I like the comment of the authoritarian Left as well…..if you believe that BS then you are definitely a Trump supporter and a moron.

I expect nothing from this committee other antics and silliness that has defined the GOP since 2010.

All this stupidity proves that the GOP, especially McCarthy, has only one aim….chaos and instability and ass kissing….such a pathetic mob.

Insurrection Update #8

My continuing series on the events and situations around the insurrection of 06 January and the aftermath…..

The “Most Wanted” of the insurrectionists, Evan Neumann, is still cowering like the spineless toad that he is…..

Neumann, 48, of Mill Valley, CA continues to occupy a spot on the FBI’s Most Wanted list. He was captured on police bodycams at the riot wearing a MAGA hat and gas mask and launching both physical and profane verbal attacks against police, the FBI says.

Details of his violent action and profane tirade against police were released by the bureau just three days after Donald Trump ranted that there was “a lovefest” between Capitol Police and the insurrectionists and that the rioters were “tremendous.”

https://www.rawstory.com/evan-neumann/

The riot was a family affair….the family that riots together can go down together….

Relatives have been charged with participating in the January 6 riot at the US Capitol before, but this is the biggest family unit yet: Five members of a Texas nuclear family were arrested Tuesday. Kristi Munn, Tom Munn, Dawn Munn, Josh Munn, and Kayli Munn each face four federal charges, News Channel 10 reports: knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority; disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building or grounds; disorderly conduct in a capitol building; and parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a capitol building. An unidentified minor child was also allegedly brought into the building by the family; that child was not charged, ABC News reports.

A tipster alerted authorities that Kristi Munn posted on social media about having been at the Capitol that day; authorities then combed through the family members’ social media posts to gain information. Tom Munn, for example, allegedly posted, “The only damage to the capital building was several windows and sets of doors. Nothing inside the capital was damaged. I can tell you, patriots NEVER made it to the chamber. There was no violence in the capital building, the crowd was NOT out of control … they were ANGRY!!!”

This illustrate the level of stupidity that these insurrectionists possess…..

A U.S. Capitol rioter who was diverted away from the Senate chamber will be released from jail while he awaits charges.

Doug Jensen, who was wearing a QAnon T-shirt when he confronted Capitol police officer Eugene Goodman during the Jan. 6 insurrection, was granted pretrial release after attorneys convinced District Court Judge Tim Kelly the Donald Trump supporter mistakenly believed he was at the White House.

“This is me touching the f*cking White House,” Jensen says in a newly released cell phone video, his hand placed on the Capitol as the riot raged around him.

https://www.rawstory.com/doug-jensen-iowa/

This gutless wonder did not know the difference between the White House and the Capitol….how proud his Mama must be.

The dangling dipshit in the doom of the Capitol has cowered in the corner and agreed to turn on his fellow insurrectionists….

A man photographed dangling from the Senate balcony and sitting in the presiding officer’s chair during the Jan. 6 Capitol attack has pleaded guilty to felony obstruction of Congress in a deal that will see him cooperate with prosecutors. (You can see the photo from Getty via the Washington Post.) Josiah Colt, 34, of Idaho admitted Wednesday to joining two others from Nevada and Tennessee in raising money, arranging travel, and purchasing paramilitary gear before breaking in to the Capitol building and rushing the Senate chamber, where he believed senators were meeting, reports the Post. Colt, who agreed to pay $1,000 in restitution, admitted to traveling to DC from Tennessee with the intention of obstructing the certification of the election results.

Ronald Sandlin of Memphis had shared a photo of Colt in bed holding a handgun on Jan. 4. “My fellow patriot Josiah Colt sleeping ready for the boogaloo Jan 6,” read the caption. Colt said he did not bring a gun to the Capitol and denied knowing the meaning of “boogaloo”—often used to refer to a violent uprising or civil war—at the time Sandlin used it. But he acknowledged breaching the Senate chamber and sitting in the presiding officer’s chair, mistakenly believing it was Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s chair. US District Judge Thomas F. Hogan recommended 51 months to 63 months in jail and a fine between $20,000 to $200,000, reports CBS News. Colt is due back in court on Oct. 18. Sandlin, 33, accused of punching a police officer, and Nate DeGrave, 31, of Las Vegas are both in custody after pleading not guilty to numerous charges.

The idiots on the Far Right are recruiting using the pandemic as a cover…..

Business Insider reported that far-right militias like the Oath Keepers and Three Percenters have faced legal and recruiting setbacks after the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol — but that they are trying to regroup with a new strategy: pushing anti-vaxxer propaganda.

“Members of the groups use apps such as Telegram to evade scrutiny and plot their next moves, experts told Insider,” reported Tom Porter. “On mainstream platforms such as Facebook they are seeking to pull in new recruits under the anti-vaccine cause. The development marked a new intertwining of two dangerous conspiracy-theory movements, according to Jason Blazakis, Director of Center on Terrorism, Extremism, and Counterterrorism at California’s Middlebury Institute of International Studies.”

According to the report, a Three Percenters affiliated Facebook page known as Mike’s Corner, which has half a million followers, has been selling anti-vaccine merchandise, including a shirt saying “PLANDEMIC: MY BODY, MY CHOICE”. Facebook, which likely made revenue off the page, took it down for violating community standards after Insider reached out to them.

One of the insurrectionists ‘heroes’……

This bitch should have never been allowed as a lawmaker……proof people are stupid to allow this d/bag in Congress.

These fools wanted to kill Dems….

wo California men plotted to destroy the state Democratic headquarters in Sacramento, hoping the attack would inspire a political movement, the Justice Department says. Ian Benjamin Rogers, 45, of Napa, and Jarrod Copeland, 37, of Vallejo, have been indicted by a federal grand jury, NBC reports. The charges include conspiracy to destroy a building with fire or explosives and possession of machine guns. The men had been planning the attack since the presidential election last fall, officials said, and had turned to a militia group for help. Copeland was arrested Wednesday, while Rogers was arrested in January and already faces charges of stockpiling illegal weapons.

Searches of Rogers’ home and business found close to 50 guns, thousands of rounds of ammunition, materials that could be used to produce explosives, and how-to books such as The Anarchist Cookbook, officials said. “I thank the FBI for their work,” the state Democratic chair of Sacramento County said, “but in this day and age we should not be concerned about violence and terrorism just for participating in the democratic process.” This is no way to support a constitutional democracy, the acting US attorney in Sacramento agreed, per KCRA. “Investigation and prosecution of those who choose violence over discussion is as important as anything else we do to protect our free society,” she said

 

 

Insurrection Update #7

I have taken upon myself to keep the memory of the events in and around the 06 January in the minds of my readers…….NOTHING about that day should ever be forgotten.

I will try to write about the events of the day and any info that pertains to the situation in the continuing saga of the insurrection……

These militias…those overweight in- bred mental midgets some of the same thinking has flexed it’s muscle in Washington (the state not the city)….

Tensions are rising in Whidbey Island, Seattle, after residents say a right-wing extremist group is tearing the fabric of the community apart, The Daily Beast reports.

The tension started when the The Washington III Percent militia took control of the local Grange association (a community gathering place) and began rejecting membership applications from anyone not aligned with them. Now, III Percenter flags and bumper stickers have increasingly popped up around town and left-wing rallies.

“They’ve been trying to do this for quite some time now: Extremists running for office, local elections, you know, county councils, state legislatures, things like that,” said Daryl Johnson, a former Homeland Security analyst who runs DT Analytics. “Once it creeps in, if nobody challenges, it becomes the new norm.”

https://www.rawstory.com/far-right-militia-takes-hold-of-island-town-in-washington-they-re-becoming-the-new-norm/

Those participants on 06 January are trying to delete their footprint off social media ahead of their arrest…..proves they are ‘guilty’….

At least 49 people charged in connection with the riots were accused of deleting incriminating content off their social media and phones, the AP found, but only a handful have actually faced charges for tampering with online content.

Experts told the AP, deleting the content shows how desperate the defendants were to manipulate evidence against them once they realized they were in legal trouble and that could make getting a plea deal or any other kind of leniency difficult.

https://www.insider.com/capitol-rioters-deleted-social-media-posts-of-their-involvement-2021-7

The spineless in-breds in the “patriotic’ Oath Keepers are doing what cowards do….turn on everyone around them….

According to a report from the Daily Beast’s Kelly Weill, members of the Oath Keepers militia— reportedly comprised of former law enforcement officers and military vets — are breaking ranks and pointing fingers at each other as they pursue plea bargain deals related to their participation in the Jan 6th Capitol insurrection.

While the Wall Street Journal has been reporting on internal strife as members question how the organization’s founder Stewart Rhoades is funding his “lifestyle” with their dues, others are more concerned with staying out of jail. And if that means providing investigators with information about their compatriots for a lighter sentence or charges being dropped — they don’t have a problem with that.

“In recent weeks, a steady drumbeat of Oath Keepers and their associates have pleaded guilty to crimes related to the Jan. 6 break-in at the U.S. Capitol, and agreed to cooperate with further investigations into the deadly riot. For the Oath Keepers, more so than almost any other group that participated in the break-in, those cooperation agreements could prove troubling to members anxious about catching charges,” Weill wrote. “Of the more than 500 people charged in the riot, members of the Oath Keepers are among the only defendants accused of conspiracy for allegedly plotting the assault on the building, in an attempt to block the certification of President Joe Biden’s election victory.”

https://www.rawstory.com/oath-keepers-riot-2653648268/

Like I said just what I would expect spineless cowards to do.

But what is next?

Some say that August may be the next attempt by these slugs…..and it could, if it occurs, could get messy….

You want to know what has doomed Nancy Pelosi’s attempts to get a bipartisan agreement to investigate the violent assault on the Capitol on Jan. 6? Every time she has talked about why we need a bipartisan commission or the select committee, she said they were necessary “so nothing like this will ever happen again.” 

Republicans aren’t against investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection because they fear it will make them look bad. They’re against doing anything to make sure that such an insurrection doesn’t happen again.

The assault on the Capitol is already damaging to the Republican Party image, at least to outsiders. The Capitol was attacked by a violent mob of Trump supporters. It’s doubtful there were any Democrats among them. The assault took place immediately after a Trump rally on the Ellipse and was incited by the then-president. Several Republican members of Congress joined Trump in addressing the crowd, along with other famous party stalwarts like Rudy Giuliani. It was a Republican rally with a Republican crowd. So was the mob at the Capitol.

https://www.salon.com/2021/07/03/the-next-insurrection-they-dont-have-the-votes-but-theyve-got-the-guns/

One leader had a model of the Capitol….

Federal investigators seized an unusual piece of evidence from a Pennsylvania man indicted last month for his role in the Capitol riot—a Lego replica of the building he allegedly stormed. Robert Morss, 27, is accused of leading fellow rioters in what prosecutors say was “one of the most intense and prolonged clashes” with officers on Jan. 6. According to court documents obtained by Smoking Gun, FBI investigators seized an array of firearms from his home—as well as what the court filings described as a “fully constructed U.S. Capitol Lego set.” The prosecutors didn’t say whether Morss used his toy to help plan the Capitol insurrection.  Another item seized from Morss was a notebook containing a “Step by Step to Create Hometown Militia,” with steps such as “Ambush” and “Battle Drills” and reminders to “Bring Assault Rifle” and “4 Magazines.”

DOJ charges Floridians in their part in the insurrection…..

The Justice Department unveiled a major indictment Thursday against five Floridians accused of attacking at least seven police officers during the US Capitol insurrection.

Prosecutors say the defendants, all from the Tampa Bay area, repeatedly attacked members of Washington, DC’s police force. They allegedly used stolen riot shields and flagpoles to assault officers in the head and neck, and later resorted to punching, kicking, and elbowing the officers.
 
The indictment includes 19 criminal counts, which is among the most for a Capitol riot case.
 
Then there are those the claim the ‘Bible made them do it’…..
According to a report from the Daily Beast’s Kelly Weill, one of the Capitol rioters taken into custody by the FBI has chosen to represent herself on charges of multiple counts of violent entry, disruptive conduct, and obstruction of Congress — and is citing the Bible as part of her defense.

Prosecutors maintain that Pauline Bauer, owner of a Pennsylvania pizza parlor, took part in the Jan 6th insurrection and reportedly told Capitol police “bring Nancy Pelosi out here now… we want to hang that f*cking b*tch.”

Weill reports that Bauer is using a sovereign citizen defense — saying she doesn’t recognize the laws of the U.S. government — and that she is operating under “divine guidance.”

https://www.rawstory.com/capitol-riot-2653744510/

One insurrectionist gets out with “Time Served”….

A defendant in the Jan. 6 attack on the US Capitol was given a six-month jail sentence Monday, but because he’s been held since the week after the riot, Michael Curzio will go free Wednesday. Judge Carl Nichols said in federal court that he lacked the authority to impose a longer sentence anyway, CNN reports. “I think that six-month sentence is appropriate here,” Nichols said, nothing that “Mr. Curzio will have, in two days, served that entire sentence.” Curzio took the standard deal offered to riot defendants who didn’t commit violence, pleading guilty to one count of unlawfully protesting in the Capitol and being fined $500 for repairs to the building. “Obviously, I was in the wrong,” Curzio said in court, per ClickOrlando. “I did do it.”

Curzio’s record is the reason he hadn’t been released before trial. He was convicted of attempted murder for shooting the boyfriend of his ex-girlfriend. While in prison, Curzio became a member of a white supremacist gang. He has said that he did that for his own protection and that he’s no longer an active member. But he still has gang tattoos and Nazi markings. On Jan. 6, prosecutors said, Curzio was in a group that invaded the Capitol Visitors Center. Police arrested Curzio and others after they didn’t leave when ordered to. Curzio said he didn’t hear the order to leave but said, “I did parade, demonstrate and picket.” He said he complied during his arrest. “I accept responsibility for my actions and what I did,” Curzio told the judge. More than a dozen other riot defendants are awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty.

Toyota Shuts Down Donations

Toyota seems to be taking the protests against them for supporting the insurrection of 06 January….

Toyota has reversed itself and now says its political action committee will no longer contribute to the Republican legislators who voted against certifying Joe Biden’s presidential election victory.

The move by the Japanese automaker comes after a social media backlash over the contributions, including threats to stop buying the company’s vehicles.

“We understand that the PAC decision to support select members of Congress who contested the results troubled some stakeholders,” Toyota said in a statement Thursday. “We are actively listening to our stakeholders, and at this time, have decided to stop contributing to those members of Congress who contested the certification of certain states in the 2020 election.”

Axios reported that Toyota led companies in donations to the 147 members of Congress who voted in January against certifying election results on the false grounds that the election was stolen from then-President Donald Trump.

On the other hand is this a serious move or is it just a way to quell some of the blowback from their buying of political figures?

How many other corporations will follow suit?

Insurrection Update #6

Yesterday was the 6 month anniversary of the failed coup by Trump supporters….

My continuing series on the betrayal of the republic on 06 January 2021 bu followers of his high disillusioned followers of his highness Trump.

Why do I call this person such?

Well one GOPer thinks he is to put it bluntly…..GOD.

Glorious readers, it’s time to meet Wisconsin Republican Senate President Chris Kapenga, who probably ought to wash his tongue after the letter he just delivered unto Dear Leader Trump, begging for his approval and desperately trying to prove his devotion. It is the most embarrassing thing we have ever seen from a person who is ostensibly a grown man. It is more embarrassing than Tom Cotton trying to do push-ups and instead doing the worm because he’s apparently been skipping core day for the past 20 years.

Granted this douche was not part of the insurrection but is included to show just how far these low IQ slugs well go to suck up anything Trump….this thinking lead to the event on 06 January…..

Now on to the people involved in the event….

One insurrectionist  demands Trump pay for his legal stuff…..

A man arrested this week for participating in the January 6th riots at the United States Capitol building demanded that former President Donald Trump pay his legal bills.

As reported by Reuters legal affairs journalist Jan Wolfe, MAGA rioter Zvonimir Jurlina was arrested in Austin, Texas this week and charged with inciting violence against members of the media who were covering the rioting Trump supporters and with encouraging the theft of media equipment.

In a video posted shortly after his court appearance Jurlina complained about being a “political prisoner” who was being persecuted for being a “patriot.”

https://www.rawstory.com/capitol-hill-riot/

Really?

Where has this dolt been?

Trump does not pay his own legal bills and this idiot thinks he will pay his for him.

Had to laugh out loud at the stupidity.

A police that joined in the insurrection has been found with all sorts of weapons of death…..

A former Virginia police officer charged in the Capitol attack was ordered not to possess any weapons—which is why authorities were alarmed to find an email receipt showing he’d ordered 34 guns. Thomas Robertson, fired by the Rocky Mount Police Department shortly after his Jan. 13 arrest, was released from custody on several conditions, including that he relocate all firearms from his home within 48 hours. Yet “four days later, while executing a search warrant at the defendant’s house in connection with the Capitol riots charges, law enforcement discovered and seized eight firearms from the home,” prosecutors write in court documents filed Wednesday, per BuzzFeed. Another search came Tuesday after FBI agents claimed to have found emails showing Robertson had ordered 34 guns, which were to be picked up from a broker, per the Washington Post.

Inside Robertson’s home, agents allegedly found a loaded M4 rifle, lots of ammunition, and a partial pipe bomb inside a box whose label mentioned “booby trap,” per BuzzFeed. It was “a metal pipe with two ends caps, with a fuse inserted into a hole that had been drilled into the device,” prosecutors write in a motion calling to void Robertson’s release order so he can be jailed until his trial. “Although this device did not contain explosive powder, such powder was found nearby,” they add, “this conduct, coupled with his calls for future violence, shows that no condition or combination of conditions can adequately protect the public from the defendant.” Robertson, who’s pleaded not guilty, described an unfolding revolution on Facebook in the days after the attack. “Peace is done. Now is the time for all the braggart ‘Patriots’ to buckle armor,” read one post.

Time for this coward to spend time among those in prison…..

Come August we could be looking at a repeat of 06 January….

Ahead of the Jan. 6 attacks on the U.S. Capitol, far-right militia groups and supporters of President Donald Trump were plotting in plain sight to “take the Capitol” and attempt to overthrow the government for their candidate.

CNN reported Wednesday that the “Department of Homeland Security officials are warning that the same sort of rhetoric and false narratives that fueled the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol could lead to more violence this summer by right-wing extremists.”

DHS is seeing the same kind of online rhetoric and threats that were coming out months ahead of the Jan. 6 attack. During closed-door meetings Wednesday, officials told lawmakers that misinformation and “the big lie” is a big influence on those plotting violence.

Seven months later, the plotting is happening again online ahead of a planned attack in August. Supporters of Donald Trump believe that he will somehow be reinstated.
” Some adherents have now pivoted into believing that Trump is the “shadow president” or that Biden’s victory was a sham,” wrote the Associated Press in June.

If you need proof that the GOP (at all but most) is supporting the insurrection….then look no further than this event….

A conservative YouTuber who participated in the January 6 riot accompanied Republican members of Congress on a trip to the border Tuesday night, serving as a translator at times.

Anthony Aguero, a close ally of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene can be seen in videos and photos with Republican members of Congress who traveled to a route along the border frequented by migrants on Tuesday night. CNN’s KFile previously reported that Aguero went into the Capitol during the January 6 riot and cheered and justified the break-in.
During his livestream of the Tuesday visit, Aguero interviewed and chatted with Reps. Tom. Tiffany of Wisconsin, Lauren Boebert of Colorado, Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina, Chris Jacobs of New York, Michael Cloud of Texas, John Rose of Tennessee, Ronny Jackson of Texas, and Mary Miller of Illinois.
“Hi guys, Congressman Hawthorn is behind me,” Aguero tells viewers during his livestream, mispronouncing Cawthorn’s last name. “That is freaking awesome. That is freaking awesome. I’ll tell you that.”

Closing Thought–05Jul21

Insurrection seems to be a popular endeavor these days…..over the Long weekend while we celebrate our independence there was a minor and short lived armed stand-off in Mass.

An hourslong standoff with a group of heavily armed men that partially shut down Interstate 95 ended Saturday with 11 suspects in custody, Massachusetts state police said. Police initially reported nine suspects were taken into custody, but two more were arrested in their vehicle later Saturday morning. The standoff had prompted shelter-in-place orders in some areas and sparking massive delays on the holiday weekend. It began around 2am ET when police noticed two cars pulled over on I-95 with hazard lights on, authorities said at a press briefing, per the AP. Some of the men were clad in military-style gear with long guns and pistols, state police Col. Christopher Mason said. The men refused to put down their weapons or comply with authorities’ orders, claiming to be from a group “that does not recognize our laws,” police said. The men also informed cops they were headed from Rhode Island to Maine for “training,” Mason said, per ABC News.

Officials say they made two initial arrests, while other men who claimed they were part of the “Moorish American Arms” group fled into a wooded area. After negotiators talked to suspects in the woods, they were finally taken into custody around 10:30am, per an MSP update. “We will now conduct sweeps of their 2 vehicles and woods,” the statement noted. The standoff shut down part of I-95 in Wakefield in both directions, prompting heavy traffic as people hit the road for the Fourth of July weekend. Residents in Wakefield and nearby Reading were advised to lock their doors and shelter in place during the standoff. Wakefield police said in its statement that no threats were made but that the men had been considered armed and dangerous. Police and prosecutors were deciding Saturday what charges the members of the group will face. The suspects were scheduled to appear in court in Woburn on Tuesday,

Is this the way of the future?
